Nürnberger Symphoniker – Nov 1, 2015 “With guest conductor Rudolf Piehlmayer a brother was found in the spirit to Widmann. He, too, began as an award-winning clarinetist his young career to more and more turn to conducting the further course. The Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra followed him in Mozart’s early G minor symphony 25 with good-natured freshness. The work of the then 17-year-old is so wonderfully perfect as anything ever brought the Salzburg to paper. However Rousing got the 2nd Symphony of Beethoven with which he ended this evening. As here Beethoven accompanying ornamentation to a structure-forming element makes his composition, was just one of many intriguing design features that spread the Nürnberger Symphoniker here very nice.”
